This is a telling story from MacIver. If you wonder why Democrats love these government handout programs, this is why. They award them to shady groups run by their supporters. Remember that the purpose of this program was not to help people with rent. That was a secondary goal. The primary goal was to make sure that the people administering the program got paid millions for it. Go read the whole thing.
Regardless, the committee members relented. They voted unanimously to recommend the contract. Later that evening, the full county board of supervisors approved it. Urban Triage now has two contracts for administering rental assistance worth a combined $21.4 million. It gets to keep a total of $2.4 million.
